Top 10 Reasons Mothers Make the Best Recruiters

As a belated mother's day gift to the mothers on the board...

Top 10 Reasons Mothers Make the Best Recruiters:

10. We’ve been lied to by enough men and children to know exactly what a lie looks like before it even gets out of a hiring manager or candidate’s mouth.

9. We’ve spent most of our lives surrounded by whiners so we are able to tune out anything annoying.

8. The meanest hiring managers/executives/company owners are not intimidating to a woman… Continue

Opinions may vary, but there is little doubt that Bill Gates has built, and continues to build, a very successful company. I find his secrets and his business strategies to be interesting and helpful:

1. Think and do. The bottom line is results. Thinking is a means to an end – and that end is action. You must take action to get results.

2. Only hire very, very smart people. The biggest problem with mediocre people is that they take up space that could be occupied by brilliant… Continue

Crazy Sexy Cool (Recruiting/Sourcing) Part I

Tazmanian Devil It was almost a year ago when I was digging through various search strings running in an uncountable number of tabs within my browser that it struck me how powerful the browser could really be for recruiters willing to take advantage of it. Of course at that point I was only thinking about bookmarks and Firefox plugins, so of course the little monster that resides inside my head just pointed to toolbars and… Continue

Advisory....Do not do business with

As a recent applicant for a position with IST Management, the recruiting manager in the Upper Midwest was very rude and obviously not a professional, representing his company.

Regardless of the current economy, representatives from companies need to be professional in their correspondence.

If you are aware of any companies, who use this business, please inform them this company is… Continue

The Strategy of Choosing an ATS

Surprisingly, the first step to choosing an Applicant Tracking System is not actually looking at the different options out there. As brought up by the folks at Aon Consulting, the first step to implementing an ATS is looking internally to determine exactly what you need. This may take some time and effort (two things people are not usually eager to give up) but in the long run it will actually make the… Continue

Animal, The Recruiter, The Recruiting Animal

Who the Hell is the Recruiting Animal?

Is he a beast? A predator? A caged animal pissed off with Gen Y whiners and the recruiting world?

Hiring Based on Merit--Does that Still Happen?

I've read a lot of blogs and articles and have sat in on countless webinars and seminars about what makes a "good" candidate and how to prep them for interviews and you know what--so much of it is so superficial it makes me want to vomit. Whatever happened to hiring people based on merit? Education, skills, training, on-the-job experience doesn't count for enough now. You also have to be pretty, charming, witty, drive a nice car, wear a nice suit, shake hands, smile, kiss babies--when did… Continue

Keeping it Real like Willy

Willy dips Skoal, hunts, drives a tractor and is missing a finger. But he has a great personality and extreme likeability factor too.

When he is not outdoors killing defenseless animals he is updating his Facebook account. We are like his livestock and he is constantly feeding us daily tidbits and photos.

The single most incredible fact about Willy is that women love him. On his wall posts women leave flirty posts and even going so far to ask him out. That’s unheard of in… Continue
